Nokia introduced the new Symbian Series 60 mobile phone during the CeBIT 2004 in Germany. The Nokia 7610 is the company's first megapixel camera phone. With options of dual-tone ruby or onyx-colored covers, the Nokia 7610 phone offers quick capturing, printing, storing and sending of photo-quality images and videos in addition to the usual options and features of the Series 60 Platform. The tri-band model is planned to be available during the second quarter of 2004 in two variants, GSM 900/1800/1900 and GSM 850/1800/1900. It is expected to retail for approximately €500.
This is also one of the first mobile phones to offer printing via Bluetooth, when using a Blueooth enable printer or by using a printer kiosk available in Nokia branded retail locations or other photo shops from Kodak. Using the Kodak Pictures application on the phone, pictures can be uploaded to a virtual photo album on the web and shared online with others or ordered as prints via an online service. The Nokia 7610 phone offers a 65,000 color screen for viewing still images and video captured by the integrated camera and watching real-time video streaming using the built-in RealOne mobile player. The megapixel (1152 X 864) camera features a high-quality lens, 4x digital zoom, and a self-timer. The Nokia 7610 imaging device also allows users to capture images in low-light conditions.
Another innovative concept available for the Nokia 7610 is the Nokia Lifeblog application, which adds an automatic digital diary to the pockets of trendsetters. The phone application records and organizes digital content - such as images, videos or messages - creating a personal logbook or multimedia memo directly on the phone. When transferred to Nokia Lifeblog on the PC, people can browse and search their multimedia diary in an easy to use timeline or share diary items with friends or family via email. Additionally, the Adobe Photoshop Album software included in the sales package allows Nokia 7610 phone users to organize and edit digital pictures on their PC's.
Other key features of the Nokia 7610 include Multimedia Messaging, email, and MP3/AAC music player, Internet browser, 72MB of expandable memory, USB, Bluetooth connectivity and support for Java technology. The small and light (118 g) phone offers up to 3 hours talk-time and 250 hours of standby time.
